Welcome to the weekend of endless rain!
(this might have also been due to FSU’s loss today)
I woke up several times last night because it was raining so hard. I also kept thinking that it was my morning to run and kept checking the time – until I would remember that it’s SATURDAY. I don’t know why I was so anxious.
We did our typical Saturday stuff today – spin followed by a trip to Target with Tracy. The kids were already whiny and stir crazy but the time we got to Target, which didn’t bode well for the rest of the afternoon.
Thankfully, one of the “perks” of a rainy day is that the kids wanted to sleep. Ahhhh nap time bliss. Unfortunately, bliss was short lived and our house got struck by a massive dose of the rain crazies. The kids suddenly had to get into EVERYTHING and their answer to all requests was NO. Ummm what?
Well, that might have been because of the chocolate chip cookies I made.
(lots of hard work right there, people.)
It seemed like such a good idea at the time. Look how happy they are!
Never again! (at least, not when it’s raining)
At least the cookies were good.
Thankfully the hubby got home before I went (too) insane and things calmed down.
(She set this whole thing up. So cute.)
I tried to convince them to go run up and down the street in the rain while I was cooking dinner, but the verdict was that the rain was too cold. Oh Floridians.
The rain is supposed to last until Monday, which is going to make tomorrow’s run SUPER special. I’ve contemplated not going (the group still runs – unless there is thunder/lightning), but I decided that it’s probably something I should do. Who knows what the weather is going to bring to Savannah next month? If there are crazies who can run an entire marathon in the POURING rain (ahem, Sarah and Danica) then I can attempt to run 14.
But it’s REALLY coming down right now and that scares me. This is the dialog going on in my head:
I really wanted to wear my new sneakers — but I think I’m going to wear an old a pair so I don’t ruin them! And maybe a trash bag? Or should I just run the miles on the treadmill? I don’t think I can do 14 all at once. Should I go? Should I not go? ARGGGHHHH.
As of right now, I’m going. We’ll see how hard it’s pouring at 3:45am. Fingers crossed that it’s not TOO bad.
Are you a fan of running in the rain? Any tips you want to share?
